Want to work out but don’t want to slave away in the gym for hours? Then you’re in the right place—check out SALA, a gym with a difference. With the belief that movement and mindfulness are two sides of the same coin, SALA offers a variety of immersive classes that will have you sweating away your troubles in no time.
Sala Sonar classes are every Thursday from Thursday 7.30-9pm.
Modelled off the London boutique fitness scene, Founder Sarah Lindsay wanted to find her ‘fitness home’ in Auckland—somewhere that offered a variety of smaller classes and interesting class concepts. Failing to find this, SALA was born. A unique gym drawing on inspiration from photography, still life, design, culture and fashion.
Sarah says “ ‘I think right now is a really exciting time to be alive. We are an experiential society. As the internet broadens our worlds we have more access than ever to information, inspiration and cross-pollination. I’ve always pulled from so many threads to weave the SALA tapestry. As humans we are never one thing, we experience a broad spectrum of colour and experiences and I want SALA to reflect that, which is why I’m so passionate on promoting a dogma-free approach to movement, creativity and mindfulness. Balance, creativity and innovation is the heart of SALA, and as our community continues to be curious and open-minded I want to facilitate new ways for them to experience positive well-being.”
SALA is more than just sweating, it sets out to create impactful experiences, community and healthy habits—all things we could definitely get on board with. With over 30 classes a week to choose from, there really is a workout for everyone.
